Reuters quoted Brazilian miner Nexa Resources SA as saying that it has reached a deal to end a workers’ strike at its Cajamarquilla zinc smelter in Peru. Workers at Cajamarquilla had downed tools to demand higher wages and better benefits, according to a union leader.

Nexa, previously known as Votorantim Metais Holding SA, said in a statement that it reached the agreement on Friday and will meet with the workers’ union again to continue talks about their demands.

Cajamarquilla, about 20 kilometers (12 miles) east of Lima, produced some 312,000 tonnes of zinc last year, about 8.5 % less than in 2016, according to government data.
